I came across the Mutha Oith website not too long ago and while I loved the art and the jokes, I wasn't sure on just what it is suppose to be? A tabletop RPG, a card-game?
Well, it is kind of both. Low Life is the RPG, and Dementalism is the cardgame.
For those interested in looking into Low Life a little more, they have just released two free 8pg pdfs; The Offical Character Creation Guide and the Boss Bible.
My only regret being that I don't have a regular game group to unleash this upon. Still, they've picked up a new fan.

Howe and Howe have announced the launch of a 'personal tank'. This would be the perfect addition to any Cyberpunk or Shadowrun game.

"These roman coins are part of a 159 coin hoard discovered near St. Albans, Hertfordshire. Gold solidi were enormously valuable coins. By law they could not be spent on retail market goods, but only for large purchases and deals like property sales and entire ship’s of goods. Whoever owned these coins was very wealthy, a merchant or a banker."
So if 159 coins represented a small fortune (and don't I mean like afford a nice condo kinda fortune, I mean like owning the whole building kind of fortune), what happens when the Heros come up from the Dungeons of Depravity with two thousand of the suckers?
Economics is something most table top gamers don't really pay much attention too. Sure, they are supposedly carrying around thousands of pounds of gold with little to no encumbrance penalties, but very little thought is given to what would happen when all that gold hits the economy. A ridiculous boom economy followed by runaway inflation and then a catastrophic economic bust. Who's mining and minting all this gold? Where did it come from?
I'm not saying that GM's should be laying out detailed economic charts for their game world, but the players suddenly finding their hard won treasure is now near worthless after a few weeks in town while everyone is suddenly wearing a solid-gold shoes, might make for an interesting development. Not to mention the sort of attention that kind of haul would attract from bandits, mercenary armies, tax collecting royals, would-be-mad emperors ....

Tentetsutou, translated as 'The Sword of Heaven' is a katana forged from a meteorite.
House Rule: A magical sword does not have to be named. But any sword that urns its name, becomes magical.
